When it was first announced that comicon and the new york anime festival were merging and becoming one event, I have to admit I had my reservations. Reed exhibitions, the company that organizes each event, clearly has a host of good reasons to combined both. New York Anime Fest is mostly just a dealer's room with some panels tacked on (not nearly the variety of entertainment that other cons offer), so it would mesh well with a larger event. Comicon doesn't have as obvious of a gain, but it could be argued that US comics are losing younger audiences to anime and manga, so some cross-pollination might be good there. Whatever the reasons, there were a lot of worries that the cons would be diminished slightly by the merge.

And they were right, more or less. Anime events were fairly under-represented in this con. The anime area was literally tucked away in the corner of the convention. It wasn't as much of a merger as it was a co-existing. This was clearest when walking from one section to the other, where the average age of the persons around you would drop by 15 or 20 years.
